For those of you in the states, I hope you’re enjoying your labor day weekend! It’s so hot here I’m wishing I was at the pool.

I know it’s been awhile, but we are back. At least enough to bring you some releases. These chapters were supposed to be part of our July release, but of course chaos reigned supreme around here for 2 months. For now our forum is still closed, but I hope to eventually open it back up to everyone. However, we will no longer be hosting releases from other groups. Too many groups now have online readers and so we felt that it was time to free up our server space for our own releases. Once I open it back up again, I hope that everyone will come to visit. I really miss talking to everyone.

To our staff members who I’ve been unable to contact, please get in touch with me at so that I know you are still active.

Even though we could really use the help in getting our projects released, I’m currently not accepting any applications for staff until I can get the site completely up and running. Right now that’s taking up all of my free time, which isn’t much. As soon as I can, I will open the positions up again.

I’m still going to ask that you not put up our chapters to online readers for 3 days. We’d like to see people come and visit, stay a while. We don’t bite. Well maybe 1 or 2 of the staff members might.  Our staff members love to hear from all of you on how you like the chapters they are working on. So if you can drop a line to let them know, it might motivate them to help get them released faster.

On that note, we have 2 projects that we are going to release today. Thanks to our friends over at Tsuki Scans we’re able to bring you another entire volume of Boku wo Tsutsumu Tsuki no Hikari! We are now caught up with the Japanese releases. However, I do know that volume 14 will be coming out in Japan on September 19th and I’ll be ordering at that time. Hopefully, we’ll get that entire volume out before the end of the year.

The other project that I have for you is another chapter of Chang an Fantastic Night. I don’t know about you, but I love all the bishies. Watch out for the drunken rowdiness in this chapter. Hopefully you won’t come out with a hangover by the end of it.

Take care everyone and I hope to see you at the end of the month with another release!

  1. I am so glad that Esthetique is back, wooww thank you so very much for all your hard work you are truly a fighter!!!!
    thank you for this community, love it here!!!

  2. Thank you, Samira01! It has taken us almost 2 months to rebuild to this point so hang in there and we hope to have everything back and better before long!

  3. “[...] you are truly a fighter!!!! ” I agree! Keep fighting!
    Thank you for the volume so very much, this manga is one my favorites, I’m extremely glad to be able to read it thanks to you guys and Tsuki scans working hard on it.

    The title of this post scared me a little; I thought you guys might have been close to disappearing/closing. You guys released some of the very first manga I read many years ago, so its partially your fault I got addicted, take responsibility and don’t close!(if possible, please) _O_
    Well I know life is life though. But I’m glad this time it was only technical difficulties. I hope to continue to see the Esthetique logo on many new releases in the future.

    And… usually I wouldn’t write so much but, I figured sometimes its better to say a little too much than too little, even if it might come out as annoying or obnoxious, at least I got to share/let you know what I think of this group and my happiness at getting new chapters. Which I will now go read. Thanks again!

  4. Thank you em & Dragon Blood. We’re so glad to be back and I like the new layout too. I have to give all the credit for that to hkgaines. She worked really hard to get us back up and running again. :)
